How do I feel today -Better than I have in awhile. I am going back to work tomorrow after a week off and I am dreading it for numerous reasons. However, it appears the hurricane has passed us by, the sun is shining and I am focusing on the positive. I have so much to be grateful for. I also feel that I am back on track.
What did you do for yourself today?
I read the Sunday Times, most of it, on Sunday! I cooked something healthy and good. I was indulgent and bought nail polish
What did I eat today and how did it make me feel – Eating right except for dinner tonight – will have small steak. On holiday I did OK and tried to be in balance
Did I exercise? What did I do? How did it feel – Ah, every month there is a weak spot, still trying to calibrate Jawbone but I definitely have not walked nearly enough in the last week. I feel weak but determined.
For whom or what are you grateful? What matters most in life?
Friends and family. Last night the boys and their girlfriends joined the nieces and I at a mystery dinner at the church. The table read Reserved – “X – Family of 8″ It made me feel warm. The fiancee declared in 10 months, I will really be a part of this family. I was given beautiful presents for my birthday and a beautiful card. I spent 4 days with one of my best friends on vacation last week. It was restorative. I had all kinds of birthday wishes from near and far. And as someone once said ” You know Santa and the Easter Bunny?!!!” What more could I or should I want out of life.
Do I have a higher purpose or driving force in my life? Make a mission statement –
Ok, still a problem. Still believe deeply in joy. In the last few weeks due to the situation at work where I am no longer being allowed my medical accommodation, I am planning legal action. I have been told this will benefit other people. So, there you go.
How long have I been treated with conventional medicine Ampyra since April. On my birthday, I read in the Times that my medical insurance company is closing so we are scared that I will lose this drug.
The first time I had a symptom – June 2004 walking on the beach boardwalk. Lately, I have been using the cane which I am going to rename a stick more and more each week.
What symptoms are most troublesome -still hung up on the ugly shoes! And my hands seem to be weakening. Same as last month. Getting a little wobbly.
Do I blame myself for things – Of course!Yes, I am still blaming myself for not being aggressive against this. However, getting back to me, slowly, slowly but surely!
How is stress level? Middling, as I have not been at the office Sept 23 but have to go back tomorrow and face the music. I know I will survicw
What can I do tomorrow to make it better than today? Continue to take positive steps in eating, exercise and most importantly the pursuit of balance.
Until next month.
